PROFESSIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITY- Training Interpreters in Public Schools (TIPS)

Published: December 7th, 2018

Special Education Directors,

Exceptional Student Services is pleased to announce a professional learning opportunity for Arizona’s school-based sign language interpreters.

Training Interpreters in Public Schools (TIPS) was developed by TASK12 at the Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence in Special Education (TAESE) at Utah State University. This intensive program begins with a face-to-face training with interpreters, followed by five months of study via online modules that aim to improve the performance skills of interpreters and ultimately support the educational success of children and youth who are deaf and hard of hearing. Interpreting skills are assessed before and after the training.

The course begins on January 12th and the total cost is $450, which includes the EIPA exit exam after completing the TIPS training. The registration deadline is Friday, December 28th.

If you have questions, please contact LeeAnn Lundgreen or Lisa Kunz.
